Well worth a trip. The roads are showing there age; highly recommend bikes with wide tires. Road bikes would have a tough time. The shorter tunnel a light would be nice but not totally necessary, you can see the light at the end of the...More

This section of the PA Turnpike was abandoned and is now a bike trail. Very scenic, easy ride. The tunnels are very dark, so make sure you have good lights.

I have visited the pike to bike a few times including Rays hill tunnel and Sideling hill tunnel. I have always visited on foot at different times of the year. It is amazing to see nature taking over the old turnpike road.

A little creepy, totally fun. We did it on foot and I would recommend doing it by bike instead. Whichever method you choose, bring a light for once in the tunnel for safety reasons. You have some visibility the entire way through, but you want...More
